Any people that test positive for Ebola in the UK will be taken to the Royal Free Hospital in north London, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said today.
The hospital is the UK's specialist centre for treating the most dangerous infectious diseases, and treated nurse William Pooley - the first Briton to contract the virus.
Hunt said there are also plans to increase bed capacity for Ebola patients in Newcastle, Liverpool and Sheffield to make a total of 26 beds available.
